Testing out the Zuiko MC 35-70 F3.6 Zoom Lens on my Olympus OM-4Ti

I've always been a prime lens kinda guy, who over the past few years been trying out manual focus zoom lenses, usually in the telephoto length but more recently in what I call the "walk around" variety. In this case the Zuiko MC 35-70 F3.6 Zoom lens. There's no macro feature, just coverage from near wide angle (35mm) to near telephoto (70mm). I used this lens last fall on an Olympus OM-1 on a city photo walk on a really grim November Saturday. On the Olympus OM-4Ti, this particular lens sings. 

Configured of 10 elements in 8 groups, the 35-70 F3.6 is a constant aperture compared to the F3.5-4 variable aperture and is the desired lens compared to the slightly slower F4. The colour rendering is amazing and sharp corner to corner. I plan to take this lens with me up to Northern Muskoka at the end of September along with a telephoto zoom like the 60-200 F4. This zoom lens is great for travel and wouldn't hesitate to take it with me on a trip. 

 If you own a bunch of Olympus OM bodies, you owe it to yourself to find this lens. If you are shooting Canon FD, you need to find the FDn 35-105 F3.5 which should have been classified L Series because it was that good, and with Nikon, the AiS 35-105 F3.5-4.5 Macro Zoom which can be used on anything from a Nikon F and Nikkormat to an FM3A.
